benefits napa, caramel and more but san francisco will be the focal point of events leading up to the sunday game. >> ron conway, one of our committee members. >> our competition is miami. the statement is over an hour away. it is the same situation. >> i think the -- >> past super bowls have taken place where you have to travel to the stadium so we feel we are okay in that regard. that is a great point.
someone. >> joe want to speak to the travel or issues? >> joe dalton with san francisco travel. the region can accommodate this. we are making sure it is a regional benefit. the businesss in san francisco will benefit and we will see job creation and tax generation but also we will see it down the peninsula and throughout the region, as daniel said. we can accommodate it, we have accommodated events before. the super bowl last time was in stanford away and san francisco was the host and regional event. we are looking forward to it and the benefit this region will get from hosting the super bowl. >> the nfl will have the super bowl at meadowlands, outside new york -- how far santa clara is. could be the first snowy super bowl. is there any concern about the nfl, the fact in february we could have horrible rain or beautiful sunshine about the weather? >> i have looked ahead. it is supposed to be sunny
that day. we are excited to put that in the bid package. my mom reminds me my birthday is february 4th, all grown up. we had all of my parties in the glorious sun so i think we are in good shape. we meet the nfl requirements of temperature. we are above that, so we are in great shape on that front. >> so be it. whatever. >> i don't think it is going to rain. >> any questions? >> we can have two weeks leading up to the event. what sort of things will be part of the overall. >> i have been told by the nfl the past super bowls -- jed can speak to this as well, there's over 200 events and parties, opportunities for us to
highlight the best of this region. we don't have the details, looking at february 2016 if we are fortunate enough to win this bid. but there is a lot of different events that go on. every restaurant will be full. all hotel also be full. event spaces will be full from san jose to santa clara, san francisco and i have started talking to people in napa and sonoma. they are excited to be as well. we said earlier super bowl 50 is very special. the nfl has been playing games in other countries for the sport. san francisco is an inter national city so we will probably have additional events that no one's thought of in terms of not only celebrating the 50ses but emphasizing inter national perspective on the
sport of football. that is a key strength. like any franchise, they are looking for more market gain, this is where it will happen. >> we are going to ask rich to come up. if this group could stay and answer questions. but rich has a special way to throw this out. once again thank you to goodby silverstein for everything. >> i like that. my birthday it rained every day. snowed. what is football without -- >> wet weather for me. >> has to fit him just right. take that off.
